Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron Plattner, MD (Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services)
Description: This is a clinician guide to adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Purpose: The purpose is to educate healthcare providers in a time-efficient manner about adult ADHD, a condition that the author describes as often misunderstood and therefore both undertreated and mistreated. Based on data and my own clinical experience, I agree that the ADHD literature has been focused primarily on the child and adolescent population.
Audience: The author strives to educate psychiatric and primary healthcare providers who treat adults in outpatient settings about adult ADHD. Dr. Young has a history of writing books, book chapters, and articles about adult ADHD, as well performing research in this area.
Features: The handbook begins with an explanation of the importance of proper care for adult ADHD and chapters on differential diagnosis and conditions comorbid with adult ADHD. The next chapters review pharmacological and psychotherapeutic management of adult ADHD and related issues such as medicine compliance, adverse events, and resistance to treatment. A separate chapter focuses on women and ADHD, and a final chapter answers 20 frequently asked questions about adult ADHD. Charts, graphs, tables, and diagnostic tools appear throughout the chapters, with listed references at the end of each chapter. However, these various elements were often several pages long and at times would be placed in the middle of a sentence, interrupting reading. A section of recommended further reading would add to the utility of this handbook.
Assessment: The books I have read on child and adolescent ADHD usually contained small sections about adult ADHD that were largely incomplete. This book condenses a large amount of information into an easy to read handbook that any healthcare provider can easily use. However, the author takes some liberties in discussing some areas of his personal interest and research into fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue disorder that do not have sufficient research backing to be in a review book. The conversational writing style makes readers feel that they are having a conversation with the author rather than reading an evidence-based handbook. Further revisions will be needed when the DSM-V is produced.

    I love, love, loved it - excpet for one minor detail. To me, your ending felt a bit rushed, and could've used more description. Other than that, I loved it! I can't wait to read the next Chapter &hearts ~M00N

    Whiteflower's Prophecy PART 1

    Moonkit ran around with Goldkit as they tryed to catch up with their brother Nutkit (which their mother called Nutkin^-^). Moonkit crashed into the bramble wall wich protected the medicine cat den. Whiteflower the med-cat stormed out as her tail lashed angrily,"Moonkit and Goldkit stop chasing your brother and mind where you're going! I hope you don't mind apologizing to Hollytail why her paw is bleeding!" /She's always ruining the fun\ though Moonkit as her silver ears flattened against her head as er small tail lashed but she finally meowed,"I'm sorry Hollytail and Whiteflower. I hope you feel better." "What did they do this time Whiteflower?" Asked their mother Bluestream who was trotting gracefully up to them, their father Blacksnow following his blue gaze searching Moonkit. "They always make my patiets experience pain when it's not needed so please confine them from theur apprentice ceremonie," said Whiteflower. "I don't think that will be neccessary, for here comes Sagestar onto the Snowy Leadge now," replied Bluestream. "Attention all cats of FrostClan! Gather beneath the Snow Leadge for a clan meeting!" Meowed Sagestar. All the cat's flocked beneath and her and Goldkit got groomed while Nutkit flinched away saved by Sagestar as she meowed,"Today is a wonderful day for 3 kittens. Moonkit,Goldkit,and Nutkit step forth." The trio stepped up and she continued,"Moonkit, do you promise to uphold the warior code,learn it's ways, and become the best warrior you can be?" "I do," squeked Moonkit "Then from now on you will known as Moonpaw until you earn your full name. Talloak you have been mentored great by Winterleaf and you have also mentored Bubbleheart greatly. We honor you for your loyalty,bravery, and patience. I hope you pass these traits onto Moonkit." "I promise Sagestar I will mentor her greatly and thank you. I will not let you down," meowed Talloak. The rest of the ceremonie seemed to pass by extremely slow but finally Goldkit became Goldpaw and is mentored by Bubbleheart. Nutkit became Nutpaw and is mentored by Articbird. /I hope I can be the greatest and fiercest warrior ever!\ she thought as Talloak lectured her about the dangers of what lurked in the snow. "Did you hear me Moonp-" he was cut off by a fierce bark and saw a artic fox. It charged at her and hit her on the head. She fell on the ground and blood clouded her vision. The last thing she saw was Sagestar killing the fox and Blacksnow looming over her and saying,"Every thing will be okay. Whiteflower will save you. Please just don't leave us yet." All went dark and she passed out. <p> [Thanks for all the reviews guys! Sorry that this one is a cliffhanger!]
